5-bedroom detached house sold subject to contract

Widney Manor Road, Solihull, B91 3JQ - Offers in Excess of £1,500,000


Chivercombe, 34 Widney Manor Road,  is a most handsome, 5 double bedroom, Edwardian detached family residence, extending to in excess of 4,500 square feet over 3 storeys,  having been newly redecorated, both internally and externally, and therefore presented to the very highest standard throughout. Being discreetly set back behind a large, gravelled driveway on an imposing wide plot, and enjoying a most convenient and desirable situation, being within comfortable strolling distance of Solihull town centre, this impressive, well-proportioned, period home truly demands an immediate inspection to fully appreciate the spacious, characterful, accommodation on offer, which also benefits from no upward chain. 

Solihull’s name is commonly thought to have derived from the position of its parish church, St Alphege, on a ‘soily’ hill. It is the most affluent town of the West Midlands, and one of the most affluent areas in the UK outside London. The town is noted for its historic architecture, which includes surviving examples of timber framed Tudor style houses and shops. The historic Solihull School dates from 1560 (although not on its present site) and the aforementioned Grade 1 listed, red sandstone, parish church of St. Alphege, dates from a similar period and is a large and handsome example of English Gothic church architecture, with a traditional spire 168 feet high, making it visible from a great distance. Lying at the heart of the West Midlands motorway network, Solihull is one of the best-connected towns in the country. Bordered by the M6 and the M40 and split by the M42, which divides the urban centre of the borough from the rural south and east and being linked to European and global markets by Birmingham International Airport. It therefore has significant geographic and infrastructural advantages, being situated 7.5 miles southeast of Birmingham, 18 miles northwest of Warwick and 110 miles northwest of London. The town centre boasts a bustling high street and the enviable shopping and entertainment complex, Touchwood, containing multiple well known retail outlets, a huge variety restaurants and bars and a multi-screen cinema showing the very latest releases. It also enjoys over 1,500 acres of green space including Elmdon, Malvern and Brueton parks, which offer plenty of family recreational facilities and ornamental gardens to walk in, to the wilder Babs Mill Local Nature Reserve with its lake, river and fishing areas. Additionally, the borough benefits from a number of outstanding state schools, including Tudor Grange and Arden academies, as well as a variety of well-regarded independent schools, with the historic, ISI ‘excellent’ rated, Solihull School being one of the most highly respected within the country.

Vendor Comments

Chilvercombe is a simply stunning family home which is quite unique in its presentation, being a large impressive Solihull town house with an equally impressive mature garden so that there is a definite feeling of being out of town rather than in the centre of it.  It is truly a wonderful home full of character and warmth and we feel very lucky to have been able to enjoy it and to make so many happy memories there. Sadly, we had to relocate but we always envisaged coming back one day and it is only recently that we have had to make the sad choice to sell.  The house itself is simply magnificent with large spacious rooms but it still has a cosy feel because of the layout which is perfect for family living.  The garden has been the focus of many family gatherings and the swimming pool adds another dimension.  It is ideally located with all the advantages that come with living in Solihull town centre and we hope the next family enjoys it as much as we have.
